    1 of 1 2 of 1

      For sunny days—or to create some sunshine when there isn’t any—here’s a recipe from B.C. Strawberries that can offer a throwback to the carefree days of summer.

      Strawberry sangria

      1 bottle (750 ml) dry white wine (Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio)
      1/2 cup orange liqueur
      2 tbsp granulated sugar
      3 cups quartered local strawberries
      1 cup white cranberry juice
      1 cup chilled lemon-flavoured sparkling water
      mint sprigs, for garnish

      In a large glass pitcher, combine wine, orange liqueur and sugar; stir until sugar is dissolved.
      Add strawberries and juice. Refrigerate until chilled.
      Just before serving, stir in sparkling water. Fill each glass with ice cubes; pour sangria over top.
      Garnish with mint sprigs.

      Tip: To make fruit ice cubes, place 1 small strawberry (cut in half if large), into each ice cube compartment; fill with water or juice.
      Freeze until solid, about 4 hours.
